Dear Sirs,


MR. BENNETT AND MRS. BROWN by Virginia Woolf.


As you may know, this appears in Clifton Fadiman’s READING I’VE LIKED published by Simon and Schuster. Hamish Hamilton are ready to publish the book here, and ask if they may have this piece, and if so, what would be the fee, and what form should the acknowledgement take.


Yours very truly, | PEARN POLLINGER & HIGHAM LTD. | L S [signature]
